Penn Yan, NY, United States, 2012/02/24 - Today’s varieties of fleece are finding new roads in to medical and nursing apparel due to its non-absorbent and stain shedding properties. The popularity of fleece resulted in Sassy Scrubs’ decision to expand their fleece scrub line - SassyScrubs.com.
Custom medical scrubs manufacturer and e-tailer, Sassy Scrubs, announced the expansion of their fleece nursing scrubs products. Sassy Scrubs has expanded their line to include 31 different colors and prints, whereas most scrub companies offer 3 basic colors of fleece fabric (white, grey, blue).
Consumers who have purchased any type of fleece garment quickly discover the benefits of wearing fleece. Sassy Scrubs customers frequently inquire about where this miracle fabric came from. Interestingly, fleece was first developed strictly for extreme cold conditions like mountain climbing and polar expeditions. It was developed entirely from polyester over 20 years ago. During the next decade the wondrously warm fabric was discovered by other outdoor enthusiasts. Fleece became popular with skiers and winter sportsmen as a light, warm layer to stave off the cold.
The status and popularity of fleece soared in the 90’s when the general public became aware of the warm, fuzzy fabric and began clamoring for fleece garments in new colors and patterns. Today’s fleece is still finding new niches, namely in medical apparel, as offered by Sassy Scrubs. Nursing and medical staff have found that the versatility of Fleece Scrubs extends their usefulness beyond the Emergency or Operating Room; beyond the backyard; and beyond cuddly leisure wear.
Fleece scrubs, due to their non-absorbent nature, shed stain-causing substances and spills, leaving their wearer looking professional all day long; no matter what has been encountered throughout the day. Fleece fabric’s easy care nature, along with its heat retaining characteristics, makes it a natural fit for medical, dental and veterinary wear.
Luxuriously warm and soft, fleece scrubs custom made by Sassy Scrubs have been wildly popular with nurses and other staff who work in cold temperature departments, overly air conditioned offices, or who live where winter weather is frightful. Warm, yet lightweight, and nearly impervious to stains, fleece has become a common go-to fabric for unique scrubs jackets and even scrubs pants.
Sassy Scrubs President Karen Bradley states,“Fleece Scrubs can span work and social situations to be welcome in nearly any environment where warmth and comfort are desired. Do yourself a huge favor and try your next Sassy Scrubs in one of our luxurious fleece fabrics.
